Regimental History
Departmental Corps, Infantry. Early in the summer of 1863 the department of the Monongahela was organized by direction of the president with headquarters at Pittsburg, Pa. The territory included within the limits of the department was the counties of Columbiana, Jefferson and Belmont in the State of Ohio, and portions of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Authority was given for the enlistment of eight companies to be known as the Departmental Corps. Ohio's quota was four companies, all furnished by Belmont county, the recruiting being done in the month of July. Capt. Deens' company was enrolled July 12, at Barnesville, and mustered July 16, at Pittsburg, Pa.; Capt. Eaton's company was enrolled July 15, at Barnesville, and mustered Aug. 15; Capt. Arrick's company was enrolled July 15, at Hendrysburg, and mustered Aug. 19; Capt. Beard's company was enrolled July 27, and mustered Aug. 28, at Wheeling, W. Va. They were in active service for a period not exceeding 60 days, when they were sent home to await orders from the department commander.
